View Full Version : Soft spots in Floor (2009 MC 197 TT)

Anyone have any issues with soft spots in the floor of a boat in the 190 or 197 series? We have multiple "soft spots" like delaminations in the floor of our boat. It is covered under warranty and is said not to be an isolated instance. I was just wondering if anyone else had this issue and subsequent factory suggested repair performed? Results?

Our '08 214 had a similar soft spot. It was in the forward ski locker lid. MC had our local dealer fix it under warranty. The only problem was that our boat has snap out carpet, so the locker lid has a texture on it like the rest of the floor. Our local dealer told us that it was not possible to match the texture, so they just made the repair smooth, and in the shape of a circle centered in the lid. Looks fine though.

I had multiple areas as well and was very upset. I fixed it myself using EastTxSkier's technique, don't trust the dealers anymore.
